BFA Asian Competitiveness Annual Report 2015

On March 17,2015, Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) Aisa Competitiveness Report 2015 was released in Beijing at a press conference held by the BFA secretariat at the China World Summit Wing in Beijing.

I. Competitiveness ranking of Asian-Pacific economies in 2014

The comprehensive competitiveness ranking of Asian-Pacific economies in 2014 shows that the “Four Dragons of Asia,” namely Singapore, Hong Kong of China, South Korea, and Taiwan of China, keep their lead as the top four. China’s ranking among 37 economies remains the same as in 2013, with its comprehensive competitiveness at the ninth place.

II. Competitiveness ranking of Asian-Pacific listed enterprises in 2014

To assess the competitiveness of Asian enterprises in an objective and scientific way, we targeted Asian listed enterprises in light of the availability of the relevant data. Based on their 2013 data released by them in 2014, we included 18,533 enterprises for ranking.

For the top ten enterprises, their ranking in 2014 has little change from the previous year. Their item ranking shows that their comprehensive competitiveness is highly related to their basic capacity. They receive relatively high ranking in basic capacity and profit-making capacity. However, their development capacity and anti-risk capacity are relatively weak. The four items are ranked as follows: profit-making capacity, basic capacity, development capacity, and anti-risk capacity.

Generally speaking, the top ten enterprises have one distinctive feature in common: having relatively strong basic capacity and profit-making capacity but relatively weak development capacity and anti-risk capacity. This indicates that Asian enterprises are still growing and their development capacity and anti-risk capacity are to be upgraded.

Analysis of the top 300 enterprises reveals that the major items deciding the competitiveness ranking of Asian enterprises are basic capacity and profit-making capacity. Development capacity and anti-risk capacity have little contribution to the comprehensive ranking. In particular, all the enterprises have relatively weak anti-risk capacity. This shows that Asian enterprises have excellent basic capacity, satisfactory profit-making capacity, and relatively poor development capacity and anti-risk capacity.

Among the top 300 enterprises, those from the mainland of China, 51 of them, performed excellently. However, the number is ten less than that in 2013. The top ten include three from the mainland of China. The companies from Hong Kong of China also have outstanding performance. Some 33 of them made their way into top 300 and one of them into top ten. However, the number of Hong Kong companies is one less than that in 2013. Eight enterprises from Taiwan of China, four more than that in 2013, entered top 300.
